New Cloud Room – “La La Losing”

A few weeks ago we caught some sounds from Brooklyn rockers’ the Cloud Room’s first step back into our iPods in years — and the time off did ‘em right. The legend surrounding the magically infectious “Hey Now Now” (and the circumstances around the rushed first record) are all well set at this point, but the forthcoming Please Don’t Almost Kill Me EP — weighing in at a lean four tracks — is a reversal of sorts: to the point, trim, crafted. “24 Hr. Heartbreak” was a dope shot of arena rousing bravado, and “La La Losing,” the next EP track we get to give five stars in iTunes, kicks in with thrumming at the top and another chant-ready hook. “La”s for “Hey”s, more uncanny chorus crafting. Pretty sure J said something about “fucking gently” in there, so listen accordingly.
